Massive space upstairs perfect for meetings and conferences as they have many large spaces. The food was fantastic and the building modern. Looked briefly downstairs on the museum and it looked to be very interesting and informative if you’re technoor technology inclined.

Park featuring 23 miles of running trails.
A moderate level hike through a few hills. Doesn't get too steep but you'll be going up quite a bit (and then down). There isn't a ton of tree coverage so bring your sunscreen and avoid during the summer.

Breeding ground for Silicon Valley businesses. The founders of Hewlett Packard, Yahoo!, and Sun Microsystems all passed through the doors of this institution.
Wonderful campus, easy and relaxing to walk around. I went up in the Hoover Tower, where you can see the entire campus! It was beautiful and pleasant!

There is no better, easy access, open space hike in the Bay Area than Windy Hill in Portola Valley. This is a 1500 vertical foot trek over 2.5 miles on a dirt road that is limited to only park ranger vehicles. Lots of dogs on leash and lots of families. Truly the best hike on the Peninsula that I've experienced. If you haven't tried it, you need to. It defines how wonderful this area is and the benefits of Mid-Peninsula Regional Park System and Peninsula Open Space Trust, which made it available to the park system. It is steep in sections, but manageable. If hot, there is an alternate trail that is slightly longer and is mostly under the trees. Both are spectacular, invigorating hikes.

The farmer's market takes place on Saturday mornings in downtown Sunnyvale. Lots of fruit and vegetable stands, flower stands and some good food. There's a lot of parking within a couple of blocks. I particularly like the little Crepe stall. There's also a stand that sells really good Olive oil. I go fairly regularly to stock up on produce and fresh flowers, and grab breakfast while I'm there.

Excellent trail for biking, walking, and bird watching. Come when it is storming and listen to the wind - wear your rain coat!

I've been to two different weddings here and each one has been spectacular. Each one had totally different decor, number of guests, etc. and each one was lovely. There is a great outdoor area for tables that is between two buildings giving you some privacy for the event. Parking is so easy.

The Center presents a wide selection of art in 24 galleries, plus outdoor gardens, courtyards, and terraces. The Center's collection spans 5000 years and ranges from ancient China to the 21st century.
We visited the Cantor mainly to see the Rodin exhibit, but also enjoyed the exhibition of oriental pottery. The museum is easy to navigate and admission is free. The Rodin exhibit includes models and smaller works inside, with the full-scale pieces in the garden a la Musee Rodin. It is quite a nice collection that gives you a good feel for Rodin’s body of work. After enjoying the exhibits we had a late lunch at the museum’s Cool Cafe, which features a nice variety of house made soups, fresh salads and sandwiches. Parking (paid) is available adjacent to the museum.

This market carries a wide range of California produce as well as a decent selection of breads, fish, meats and cheeses. Aisles are wide and well laid out.

The Stanford Theater is a classical independent movie theater, located on University avenue, Palo Alto, which did show all kinds of movies until it was restored and transformed into a classic Hollywood movie theater in 1989 by David Packard, who aimed to bringing back the movie-going experience of Hollywood's Golden Age, which includes a live organ recital at the beginning and end of the films. “The magic of the movies depends on a larger-than-life image and the shared reactions of a large audience”. Ticket prices are reasonable compared to other theaters but the schedule changes quite rapidly - you can see different films and old favorites every 3-4 days. The theater has a stunning entrance and was built in the 1920s as a movie palace styled in neoclassical Persian and Moorish architecture. Simply an oasis of style and calm amid the bustle of modern life – I just wish the popcorn could be banned – both smelly and noisy!!
